Barton W. Stuck, Signal Lake Management, LLC, Signal Lake Side Fund, L.P., Signal Lake Side Fund II, L.P., Signal Lake Side Fund IIA, L.P. and Signal Lake General Partner LLC (CRD No. 285438) – Order to Cease and Desist Made Permanent; $700,000 in Fines Imposed 

On May 2, 2018, following an administrative hearing, the Banking Commissioner entered Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law and an Order (Docket No. CF-17-8254-S) against Signal Lake Side Fund, L.P, Signal Lake Side Fund II, L.P. and Signal Lake Side Fund IIA, L.P., all of 606 Post Road East, Westport, Connecticut 06880; Signal Lake Management, LLC, investment manager of the funds; Signal Lake General Partner LLC, the general partner of an affiliated nonrespondent; and Barton W. Stuck, a managing member of the funds' investment manager as well as a control person of the funds.

The respondents had been the subject of a June 27, 2017 Order to Cease and Desist, Notice of Intent to Fine and Notice of Right to Hearing alleging that 1) at various times between 2007 and 2014, Stuck and the fund respondents violated Section 36b-16 of the Connecticut Uniform Securities Act by offering and/or selling unregistered fund securities to investors; 2) from approximately 2008 to 2014, in providing investment advice to the funds on a compensated basis, Signal Lake Management, LLC transacted business as an unregistered investment adviser in violation Section 36b-6(c)(1) of the Act and engaged Stuck as an unregistered investment adviser agent in violation of Section 36b-6(c)(3) of the Act; 3) respondent Stuck violated Section 36b-6(c)(2) of the Act by transacting business as an unregistered investment adviser agent; 4) Stuck and Signal Lake Management, LLC violated the antifraud provisions in Section 36b-4(a) of the Act by falsely representing to an investor in Signal Lake Side Fund II, L.P. that millions of dollars in additional investor capital had been provided to finance the partnership's operations when no such monies had, in fact, been received; and 5) Stuck and Signal Lake General Partner LLC violated Section 36b-23 of the Act by making a misleading Form ADV filing with the agency.

The hearing decision concluded that respondent Stuck violated the antifraud provisions in Sections 36b-4(a)(2) and 36b-4(a)(3) of the Act in connection with sales of Signal Lake Side Fund II, L.P. securities by falsely representing that the fund was a successful partnership with capital commitments exceeding $150 million.  The hearing decision also found that Stuck, on behalf of Signal Lake General Partner LLC, violated Section 36b-23 of the Act by making false or misleading statements on that entity’s Form ADV filing.  Among those misstatements was a representation that an affiliated entity had $145 million in assets under management and that the affiliate’s records were maintained and audited by O’Connor Davies.  The decision also found that Signal Lake Management, LLC violated Section 36b-6(c)(1) of the Act by transacting business as an unregistered investment adviser and that Stuck violated Section 36b-6(c)(3) of the Act by transacting business as an unregistered investment adviser agent of Signal Lake Management, LLC.  The hearing decision concluded that, while securities of Signal Lake Side Fund L.P and Signal Lake Side Fund II, L.P. were sold in violation of Section 36b-16 of the Act, the record did not support a similar conclusion for securities of Signal Lake Side Fund IIA, L.P.

The accompanying Order rendered the June 27, 2017 Order to Cease and Desist permanent as to each respondent effective May 3, 2018.  In addition, the Order fined respondent Stuck $500,000, fined Signal Lake Management, LLC $100,000 and directed Signal Lake General Partner LLC to pay a $100,000 fine.
